A suspect used a toy gun Tuesday in an attempted bank robbery in Latonia.
Akihiko Clayton, 20, entered the Huntington Bank and ordered employees and patrons to the ground, according to Covington Police. Officials responded to the Decoursey Avenue bank around 12:40 p.m.
The suspect fled out the front door and was quickly stopped by police. He had the money from the bank and the weapon in his possession, officials report.
It turned out Clayton's pistol was only a toy gun made to resemble a real firearm, according to Covington Police.
Clayton confessed to the crime and was arrested. He was also served a warrant for a bank robbery in Campbell County.
